Additional information
Organizational model of stock exchange
  • Listed company for profit; demutualized in 2007
Regulatory model
Government (Statutory) Model
  • The Emirates Securities and Commodities Exchange (ESCA) serves as the federal regulator of the UAE and licenses and supervises all securities exchanges in the country - including the Dubai Financial Exchange. The ESCA implements regulations for the country's securities exchanges and is able to revoke or suspend the listing of securities. Furthermore, the ESCA implements bylaws for the country's brokers. Accordingly, the Dubai Financial Market possesses very little regulatory power and would not be considered self-regulatory.
